2017 3M Young Innovators Challenge  

2017 3M Young Innovators Challenge 

The outstanding success of the 3M Young Innovators Challenge, which has been run in the Loughborough area in partnership with the town’s local newspaper since 2013, has led to the launch of a brand new competition for schools local to the company’s Bracknell site in Berkshire. 
 
At Bracknell, the 2017 competition will be run in partnership with the organisation Learning to Work and will be open to primary and secondary schools across the Bracknell Forest and Wokingham districts. 
 
It will be formally launched at an event held at the Bracknell site on 10 January and the prizes will be presented by Dr Phillip Lee, the MP for Bracknell, at an awards ceremony on 27 May.  
 

Mosaic 

 

MOSAIC - Could you Mentor, Inspire and Motivate Young People? 

We are looking to recruit mentors to support the delivery of the Mosaic Secondary School Mentoring Programme and Enterprise Challenge in the Boroughs surrounding Heathrow, supporting young people in Slough, Ealing, Hillingdon, Hounslow and Spelthorne. 
 
As part of the National mentoring programme, we aim to raise the aspirations of young people, help them to build confidence, enterprise and employability skills. 
 
Mosaic’s secondary school mentoring programme provides a package of opportunities to raise the aspirations of young people and then help close the gap between those aspirations and their attainment. 
 
Requirements: 7 hours over several weeks to be selected between yourself (the mentor) and the school. 
 
The Mosaic Enterprise Challenge is an annual, national competition during which secondary school students ages 11- 16 learn about establishing and running a business through a business simulation game. The competition is unique in that students benefit from being mentored by experienced business professionals who pass on their knowledge and skills about various aspects of business 
 
Requirements: 1 hour a week for 6 weeks or 1 full day
